'Love & Hip Hop Atlanta' star Stevie J arrested for back child support

As reported earlier this year, Stevie J owes more than $1 million in back child support to Carol Antoinette Bennett for their two children. Now Stevie will find out that child support is no joke and since he didn't pay up with cash, he can do it in jail instead. On Tuesday Madame Noire reported that Stevie J was arrested for not paying his court ordered child support and it was all caught on camera.

Project Child Support helped Bennett to pursue Stevie J in the child support case. He reportedly was ordered to pay somewhere in the area of $8500 per month for the two children but did not do that. Now he owes more than $1 million. That's a lot of months he skipped out on!

Stevie J's arrest was all caught on tape and thanks to TMZ, everyone gets to see it. According to the report, Stevie J hasn't payed a penny of child support to Carol Bennett since 2001.

Stevie J and his alleged wife Joseline have been seen living it up this season on "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta." They have a new huge house, beautiful cars and really nice things (allegedly.) There have been numerous people this season calling Stevie J out for living a lifestyle that he really can't afford. That's if it's to be believed that Stevie isn't still raking in a ton of money for projects he did with Diddy. He has to be getting crazy residuals right?

In any case, Dawn and his other baby mama Mimi Faust have made claims that Stevie J and Joseline are faking everything. Dawn says that the Atlanta power couple's cars and house are rented. They are also accusing Stevie J and Joseline of not really being married.

To make matters worse, "Baseball Wives" star and a former friend of Stevie J is accusing them of taking her stuff. Anna Benson alleges that she asked Stevie J to take care of her stuff that was in storage while she spent a short time in jail. Instead, she said he and Joseline have been using her things. Most notable, a Versace plate that was even shown and talked about on an episode of "Love & Hip Hop Atlanta." She says the two are fronting and pretending to be well off when they really are not.
